    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at US Agricultural Research Service (Washington, DC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was me and one other person. There was a keyboard and a mouse that was connected to the projector on the wall. It was set up like a mock help setting except your supervisor is watching your evert move on a projector that is on the wall.
